“In the short term I’m trying to try and get ready for Miami,” he told Amazon Prime.
“I’ve done so much rehab these last few months that in terms of my strength and everything all of the muscles around the hip are working well, it’s just I hadn’t played tennis – I’d hit twice since the Davis Cup for like 40 minutes in a three month period.
“I need some time to build up and feel good on the court again but that’s kinda my plans just now unless I have a setback or something.”
